Lynne was very helpful with ensuring my dress was altered for the day. She made sure that I made it down the aisle without tripping over my dress. She also added the missing sequins and redid the button elastics from my off the rack purchase. To add the finishing touch, she made sure I could bustle the dress.Sent on 18/08/2020
The Dress Whisperer's reply:Wow Emilie, you looked so beautiful. Thank you for picking me to do your alterations. You are a pleasure to work with and I wish you all the best in your marriage. Regards, Lynne

Amazing! Everyone should choose The Dress Whisperer!
Lynne is fantastic! She is quick to respond, friendly, professional, helpful, and accommodating. I had a lovely time chatting with her as she was putting the bustle in my dress. I would 100% recommend her to everyone.Sent on 20/08/2020
This review is long overdue as I unfortunately never actually ended up having my wedding due to COVID (it was supposed to be in Mexico), so cannot provide a picture of the dress or her work. Hopefully I'll be able to post again within the next year or so.

Amazing seamstress and very accomodating
Lynne was amazing. She finished my dress very quickly, did a great job and was super accommodating. My mom was in from out of town and Lynne was able to make time for me to pick my dress up and show us how to bustle it. She's also so friendly, the whole process was enjoyable.Sent on 02/03/2020
The Dress Whisperer's reply:Thanks Shelby, you looked absolutely gorgeous. It was a pleasure to work on your dress and meet both you and your beautiful mother.

5 Stars All Round
Lynne was great, from the moment I contacted her to picking up my dress. She was kind and totally calmed my anxieties about my dress alterations. Her prices were extremely reasonable for the amount of lace detail that my dress needs and I have already recommended her to a few friends who are getting married next year. Thanks so much, Lynne for making me feel great on my day!Sent on 12/11/2019
The Dress Whisperer's reply:Hannah, thank you for the lovely review. You look amazing and it was an absolute pleasure to work with you.

Blue Skirt Bliss
Lynne is absolutely the dress guru. Everything about working with her from her punctual responses, adorable and artsy abode/workshop, her sassy confidence and clear pride of craftsmanship instilled in me the utmost faith in customizing my two piece dress into a unique and beautifully fitted dress and blue overlay skirt. She came in early, on price and with great enthusiasm. I'm so grateful to her for her work in helping to make my day so magical. I highly recommend her!Sent on 05/10/2019
The Dress Whisperer's reply:Olivia ... talk about coming in early ... because you were organized well in advance, you made my job easy! You were a pleasure to deal with and I was excited to work on your dress. What a stunningly beautiful day.
